Philanthropists to Join Principals for a Day

Long Beach philanthropists Mike and Arline Walter will be Superintendents for a Day during the Nov. 16 Principal for a Day event co-sponsored by the Long Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, the Long Beach Unified School District and the Long Beach Education Foundation. Cal State Long Beach’s landmark Pyramid events center bears the Walters’ names in honor of the couple’s $2.1 million donation to the university. Mike Walter formerly headed CSULB’s College of Business Administration and serves on the Long Beach Harbor Commission. The Superintendent for a Day is the ceremonial and inspirational leader of area business leaders who will become principals for a day at elementary, middle and high schools to observe students, teachers and the operations of California’s third largest school district. Chairing this year’s event are Ryan Alsop, director of Government and Public Affairs for Long Beach Water, and Shaun Lumachi, president of Chamber Advocacy.
